    selling iPad- good price?

    I am going to sell my Husband's iPad 4 he got in the end of August. He passed away suddenly on December 12, 2013. I got myself an iPad air and no family members need or want a tablet. I looked at what they are getting on ebay- 300-330.00 sales but I never sold on ebay and have to ship and...

    I did it for peace of mind and the tech support lasts over the 90 days for the full two years

    I love my "Air" over my first generation iPad. Pardon the PC reference but it's like a celeron to a quad core. I got a smart cover clone off of amazon( 2.00) and this week, i'm getting a portfolio cover like my spouse has for his iPad 4- it ranges from 10-15( depending on a print vs solid...

I can't get to the store on Friday, but will call ahead and be there Saturday- i got a couple of cool cases that are supposed to fit the Air- worst case, I paid 16.00 for both cases- Vinyl but just like the 79.00 leather case by...

    Who's getting an iPad Air?

    I am disappointed you can't pre-order/reserve one till Nov 1st and that is for shipment to you,not store pick-up. Guess we will be standing in line Nov 2nd with the rest of the world. If i have it sent to me, I have to pay 8% sales tax or go to Delaware and pay no sales tax- for a 64 gig wifi...

    new product covers and cases

    Ok, hopefully apple will be announcing the iPad Oct 22(tommorow). I am going to be totally out of character and pre-order the new iPad. I have to assume that the manufacturers of cases and covers have to be in on the true dimensions for production of peripherals so they are ready for purchase...

    iPad 5 And iPad Mini 2 Rear Shells Leak In Gold

    Very Clever of Apple. i understand that the gold iPhone 5S was the most popular color and sold out first. It is just a color of the case but people will go for new twist. I remember when all phones were black( you got colorful cases ). Many android phones are producing colored cases to revive an...

    iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 could have iPhone-quality 8MP cameras

    I have seen people take pictures with an iPad- usually tourists( foreign). I would never think of walking around pulling my tablet out for pictures. My phone of iPot touch fits into my pocket- Two years ago I bought a really nice 16 megapix 24 x zoom camera- i leave it at home - with my phone, I...

    New Video Shows Supposed iPad 5 Front Panel With Space for Touch ID Home Button

    I would be surprised if apple didn't have the bells and whistles of the iPhone 5S on the next iPad- Bet there will be the newest chip and processor- Well, two more weeks to go for a supposed announcement- I wonder if IOS 7 will be pre- installed?

    New leaks suggest there could be a space grey version of the iPad 5

    I like the grey. Not sure about gold. I keep my product in a full cover anyway( I express my wild side in covers for my devices ) Black or white is boring- i realize it's more costly for a company to produce something in multiple colors if one color does not sell as well- it's just a case cover...

    I might just have to look back into a mifi . When i went to Bestbuy, they carried a no contract MIFI but had no idea on it other than it cost 49.99 to purchase. They did not know the amout of monthly data ,price or coverage strength- Thanks geek squad.

    best cellular provider for iPad?

    Thanks to all, that's the kind of info I needed- I was not sure how much data I would need. I bet the folks at the apple store near me can help with what provider has the strongest signal for my needs. Back when the first iPads came out I believe only AT&T offered cell coverage. My other option...

    I'm going to upgrade my iPad 1 in the next couple of months( waiting to see if rumors of iPad 5 / Oct announcement come across means lower prices of iPad 4 if I wait) I never used the AT&T cellular on my iPad( bought it last year). I have been using my mobile WiFi off my android phone but it...

    when i get my new iPad 4(or 5)

    I will probably get a new iPad by the end of this month rather than wait for the iPad 5 to come out now that a co-worker wants my iPad 1. Do i just have to connect the new device to my computer to put all of my apps that are on my old iPad to the new one? i don't plan on giving up the old one...

    Waiting for Ipad 5 - Question

    On another forum, there was a post that Walmart has started to put iPads on sale( like 20.00 off) Apple products only go on "sale" when a new model is coming out- the iMac's went down just as the new upcoming models were announced- I got the new model because I was going to get the larger hard...

    updating from 5.1.1 to iOS 6.X

    Apple will buy back iPads. You can call 1800 my apple and give them the specks and condition and they will tell you what it is worth up to ( condition pending) in app card. I have a 64 g with cellular and I could get up to 120.00 trading it in. The store doesn't do the transaction but set you up...

    Apple Could be Planning to Launch New iPad and iPad Mini on September 10

    fingers and apps crossed- ever since hubby got his iPad 4, my first gen iPad is mighty slow and heavy- not to mention I have 4 apps I frequent that I can no longer update without IOS 6- If no news by the end of Oct, i'll go for the iPad 4- just figure new model will have a newer processor that...

    Hubby's iPad is listed as mine? can we re-name the iPad?

    Hubby just got his own iPad 4 yesterday. I had set up his iTunes account a few weeks prior when i put his music on his laptop(PC). We set his tablet up at the apple store and registered it under his name. When i plugged in the tablet via USB, the iPad came up under my name's iPad. when I first...

    Great, now hubby wants his own iPad

    ah, yes. the things you can't do with a first gen iPad. We leave for vacation this evening and i'm not even packing my digital camera- my iPod touch takes just as good pictures and it is set up with dropbox and I have a mobile hotspot on my phone. I will not use a tablet as a camera like i see...

    Great, now hubby wants his own iPad

    I'm not complaining- I was going to pay for my own with my "pin" money - the little bits after the week I would save going towards vacation or stuff i wanted- He's going to use his inheritance for both iPads- no complaints- and i get to trade in my old one for an app card-up to 120.00 Sweet

    Great, now hubby wants his own iPad

    I'm not against my hubby getting an iPad- I wanted to give him my iPad1 when i get a new one by end of this year. He saw the wonders of the tablet and even a tech illiterate as he is saw apple was better than PC tablets. I thought a iPad 3 16 g would serve his needs- Facebook , a little internet...

    buying refurbished- any negative concerns

    thanks for the input. The savings is what really spiked an interest in refurbished. It means he can get a iPad 3 for the cost of a iPad 2 . I am going to wait till the fall to make the purchases because if there is a new model, there will be sales on the 3 and 4- either way, the price won't go...

    buying refurbished- any negative concerns

    After visiting an apple store and hubby seeing in action- he wants one too. The apple employee did mention a refurbished as a $ saving possibility since we are both looking for one(each). Anybody ever buy refurbished and any feedback or concerns- I would only buy through the apple site .

    Ditto- I have an uncle that is 80 and very into the technology- he even sent my mom a mini because he likes to chat with FaceTime . Unfortunately, she is not interested in tech like my dad was
